Published on March 09, 2017

Capture.PNGSurvey to Explore Growth Barriers Faced by Female Entrepreneurs in East Africa is a publication of Graça Machel Trust. It gives an introduction and background to the challenge facing female entrepreneurs, and discusses their tendency to remain micro and small businesses if the access to finance challenge is not addressed.

The report also sets out the individual and business profiles of women entrepreneurs, and outlines findings that provide insights on the gender profile of the businesses, the support available to these businesses, and attitudes towards insuring businesses.

Its recommendations are useful in addressing identified business issues, and offers a conclusion that promotes gender lens investing.
